Brabham Ralt Honda - The Ron Tauranac story Brabham

Éditeur : Brooklands Books
Until now, the man whose racing cars have won more victories than anyone else’s, and whose design skills have brought fame to hundreds of drivers and made champions of a good many of them, has remained in the background. Ron Tauranac – British-born, but brought up in Australia – always preferred to let his cars sing his praises where it really mattered – on the race tracks of the world.
They have never been known as Tauranacs, but the names Brabham and Ralt will be very familiar to anyone who has followed motor racing since the Sixties. And so, of course, is Honda, the company which supplied the engines for some of Tauranac’s most successful Brabham and Ralt racing cars and with which he still retains close links as a design consultant, working behind the scenes on several of their motor racing activities.
Ron Tauranac has designed racing cars for over forty years and Mike Lawrences book documents his work in detail – particularly with regard to Brabham, Honda and his own Ralt firm.
It is a superb biography of one of the pivotal figures in motor sport. It provides an educational outing into the world of open-wheel race car productions. Virtually anybody who was somebody in racing has made an appearance here.
If you are looking to learn the truths of who, why and when, then this is the book for you. First published by Motor Racing Publications in 1999.
